        An album containing twenty-one mounted engravings of beggars.

      Early 19th century calf. The engravings, on chained paper, are probably 18th century. Each approximately 15 x 10 cm.

He also etched many religious and military images, and many prints featured extensive landscapes in their background.

        Peruviae Auriferae Regionis Typus. Didaco Mendezio Auctore/ La Florida. Auctore Hieron. Chiaves/ Guastecan Reg

      Amsterdam:. 1592.. A very early original color copper engraved map of the Spanish empire in the New World, made up of 3 maps on one sheet: the largest showing central and South America (Peru); the second showing Florida and the southeast; and the third, Guastecan (Huasteca), a northeastern province of Mexico. The map of Florida is important as it is the first regional map of the southeastern section of North America, and shows the discoveries of Spanish explorers such as Cabeza de Vaca and Hernando de Soto, including a distorted representation of the Mississippi River (named 'Rio del Spirito Santo'). First published in Ortelius' "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum". Burden 57: "(La Florida) is one of the very few maps printed in the sixteenth century that was based upon original Spanish sources. They were very protective of their knowledge of the Americas, a considerable source of their wealth. The author of this map, Geronimo de Chaves, was the Cosmographer Royal to Philip II of Spain". The map of Florida is considered to be the first to show any interior detail of the present day United States, and was set the standard for mapping the region for the century to come. Latin text on verso with first letter hand colored & decorated with griffins; the number '9' at the lower right. The present map is from the 1592 Latin edition, according to Cartographica Neerlandica (Background for Ortelius Map No. 15):1592L9 (last line, left aligned: feruentum). Image size: 18 x 13". Paper size: 20 3/4 x 17 1/8". Printed accurately, but not square on the page, sits tilted slightly toward the left. References: Van den Broecke, M. 15; Burden, P.D. 57; Cumming, W.P. (SE) 5.

        Archetypa studiaque patris Georgii Hoefnagelii Iacobus F. genio duce ab ipso scalpta, omnibus philomusis amica D: ac perbenique communicat. I. Chr. Weigel excudit

      Frankfurt am Main, [1592]. Small oblong 4to. Engraved title page from the Pars Prima, plates 1, 3-11; Pars Secunda with engraved title page, plates 1-3, 5-10, 12; Pars Tertia (title page not present) plates 4-10. All plates are partly hand-coloured in an old (but probably not contemporary) hand. In 20th century cloth box.* While a complete set of this very rare work comprises four parts with 48 plates and four titles, this copy of the first three parts of the set has 29 plates in total. Ten engravings have been mounted, several plates repaired and several margins thumbed. The plates illustrate fruits, flowers - including tulips, irisses, orchids - with many different insects, snails, frogs, apes, mice, crabs, etc. This work is generally renowned for its finely executed entomological illustrations. Joris (Georgius) Hoefnagel (1542-1601) produced the Archetypa during his 'Frankfurt period' which was between 1591 and 1594. "The Archetypa were engraved as a reproduction of a collection of models and served in turn as a pattern book for other artists" (quote from Archetypa Studiaque Patris... Natur, Poetry and Science in Art around 1600, by Thea Vignau-Wilberg, Staatliche Graphische Sammlung München, 1994). Hollstein IX, 17-64; Horn-Schenkling, 10472; Nissen ZBI, 1954.

        DIALOGHI DI DON ANTONIO AGOSTINI ARCIVESCOVO DI TARRACONA INTORNO ALLE MEDAGLIE INSCRITTIONI ET ALTRE ANTICHITA

      APPRESSO GUGLIELMO FACIOTTO 1592 In 4. Dim. 33x23,5 cm. Pp. (28)+318+(38)+6. Raro esemplare del 1592, prima edizione italiana, di questo importante trattato di numismatica di Don Antonio Agustin (1517-1586), storico umanista spagnolo. L'opera venne pubblicata per la prima volta in spagnolo nel 1575. Ebbe molto successo, tanto che ad essa seguirono le edizioni italiane del 1592, 1625, 1648, 1650, 1736. L'opera è suddivisa in dialoghi tra l'autore e due ipotetici interlocutori. Le prime edizioni italiane contenevano undici dialoghi, l'opera venne poi arricchita di un dodicesimo dialogo e della vita dell'autore. Il nostro esemplare risulta completo di tutte le pagine editorialmente presenti nella prima edizione del 1592 ((12)+300+(32)+6) ma in più sono stati aggiunti dopo le prime 12 carte due quarterni (otto carte) tratte dall'edizione del 1736 che contengono la vita di Don Antonio Agostini, la bibliografia, note e indice e alla fine degli undici dialoghi il dodicesimo dialogo e le sei carte finali dell'edizione del 1736. I dialoghi descrivono le medaglie e quali tra di esse sono monete, i rovesci delle medaglie in particolare quelle che raffigurano virtù e Dei, provincie città e fiumi, edifici, animali, medaglie dell'Africa, Francia e Spagna, medaglie della provincia di Tarracona, della Betica e della Lusitania, iscrizioni, medaglie e iscrizioni false, le antichità romane scolpite nelle medaglie e della antica religione e Dei de Gentili. Dopo il fascicolo aggiunto del 1736 (dodicesimo dialogo e sei carte) è presente l'indice e un'aggiunta su una medaglia di Costantino che al colophon riporta "In Roma, appresso gli stampatori camerali". Il testo è impreziosito da quasi 1300 incisioni di medaglie e monete e 14 incisioni che rappresentano la misura delle medaglie, raffigurazione del Nilo, diversi archi di Roma tra i quali Arco Trionfale, Arco di Costantino, Arco di Portogallo). Bellissimo frontespizio allegorico racchiuso entro cornice architettonica. Legatura ottocentesca in mezza pergamena. Note scritte a penna alla prima pagina di sguardia. Esemplare in buone condizioni. Non comune. Copertina in mezza pergamena ottocentesca con titolo su tassello in pelle al dorso in buone condizioni generali con lievi usure ai margini e dorso. Legatura in buone condizioni a parte le prime 10 carte allentate. All'interno le pagine si presentano in buone condizioni con rare fioriture e qualche brunitura. Alcuni segni di restauro: all'occhietto del dodicesimo dialogo, al margine inferiore dalla carta Rr dell'indice sino alla fine del volume. Restauro al margine destro dell'ultima carta 6 e segno di tarlo senza perdita di testo. Buchino di 1 cm a pag. 175 con perdita di testo. Tarlo alle prime 6 carte dell'indice. The work was published for the first time in spanish language in 1575. The work had a great success, so much that followed the italian edition of 1592, 1625, 1648, 1650, 1736. The work is divided into dialogues between the author and two hypothetical persons The first italian editions contained eleven dialogues, the work was then enriched of another dialogue number twelve and the life of the author Our copy is editoriarly complete of all pages in the first edition of 1592 ((12)+300+(32)+6) but there is an adding after the first twelve papers of eight papers taken from the edition of 1736 containing the life of Don Antonio Agostini, the bibliography, notes and index and at the end of the eleven dialogues the dialogue number twelve and the six final papers of the edition of 1736. The dialogues describe medals and which between them are coins, the reverse of medals in particular those with virtues and gods, provinces cities and rivers, buildings, animals, medals of Africa, France and Spain, medals of the province of Tarracona, of Betica and of Lusitania, inscriptions, medals and false inscriptions, roman antiquities in medals and of ancient religion and of Dei de Gentili. After the adding part of 1736 (dialogue n. 12 and 6 papers) there is the index and an adding about a medal of Constaintine which at the colophon tells "In Roma, appresso gli stampatori camerali" The text is enriched by 1300 engravings of medals and coins and 14 engravings represent Nile, different archs of Rome between them Arco Trionfale, Arco di Costantino, Arco di Portogallo).

        Le Court Leete & Court Baron Collect Per Iohn Kitchin De Graies Inne... Et Les Cases Et Matters Necessaries Pur Seneschals De Ceux Courts a Scier & Pur Les Students De Les Measons De Chauncerie [bound with] Retorna Breurum

      Richardi Tottelli. 1592. Hardcover. Rebound with remains of old covers and spine relaid, new spine label bearing gilt titles, some browning and spotting to first and last leaves, minor marginal chipping to title and upper outer corners of first few leaves not affecting text, some old ink underscoring and marginalia, close trimmed at upper margin shaving running heads in second half of volume, 'Retorna Breurum' with separate dated title page but foliation and register continous. Foliation [12] 289 [3], collation: A-A8 *4 A-Oo4. John Kitchin was a legal writer and was admitted to Gray's Inn in 1544 and called to the bar in 1547. Nothing is known of his life before this and he is most famous for his two works, 'Le Court Leete...' and 'Retourna Brevium...' first published in 1580 & 1581 respectively. While their content is drawn from records previously available in manuscript form, Kitchin reconstituted them with exposition under alphabetical headings that gathered together a great deal of learning from the year-books and later case law. His aim in this was to improve the knowledge of law students but he also expressed the desire to see manorial courts run by properly trained lawyers rather than the stewards who were merely the ‘servants’ of the lords and ‘ignorant in the law’. In this he was seeking to bring these courts under a broader and more uniform framework of Royal, as opposed to seigneurial, justice. These two works would continue be republished throughout the 17th century. , 8vo .

THE FIRST MODERN ATLAS This Latin edition of 1592 was vastly expanded from the first edition of two decades earlier and includes the appendix of historical maps known as the "Parergon" that represents Ortelius's most personal contribution to the volume. Abraham Ortelius first published his atlas, "Theatrum orbis terrarium" in 1570, and as Rodney Shirley noted in his study of world maps, ushered in an era when "pre-eminence in map publishing was transferred from Italy to the Netherlands, leading to over a hundred years of Dutch supremacy in all facets of cartographical production." Ortelius was a true pioneer in map publishing, and his innovations brought momentous changes to the world views of contemporary Europeans. Little is known about his training and early career, but his true accomplishment, was the publication of the "Theatrum". To compile the atlas, he drew upon his many contacts in the growing network of European cartographers to secure the best existing maps. He then had them re-engraved by the talented Flemish artist Frans Hogenberg (1535-90) such that all conformed to a standard format and graphic style, appended scholarly text to their versos, and published them as a uniform edition. The result was an atlas that was truly without precedent. Previously, collections of maps had been assembled into book form, but none conformed to the modern definition of the geographical world atlas. These earlier volumes fell into two categories. The first comprised map books made to order according to the desires and needs of an individual client ("composite atlases," sometimes called "Lafreri atlases"), and no two were alike. In contrast to Ortelius's atlas, few of these books included explanatory text, and they con.

        Benedicti Pererii Valentinii E Societate Iesu. Adversus Fallaces & Superstitiones artes, Id Est, De Magia, de Observatione Somniorum, et, de Divinatione, Astrologica. Libri Tres.

      Venetiis, Ioan. Baptistam Ciottum, Senesem, 1592, Sub signo Minervae. In 12esimo, marca gesuitica al front., pp. (6), 256, (10), leg. orig. in p. perg. floscia con tit. ms. al dorso. Opera fondamentale, considerata un eccellente trattato di magia, di divinazione astrologica, di stregoneria e di esorcismo (l'opera venne usata come manuale per esorcismi; diversi sono i passi relativi all'alchimia). In essa l'A. rigetta le teorie di Cardano, del Pomponazzi e di Pietro d'Abano sulla magia naturale, della quale essi sono sostenitori, considerando cio? tutte le operazioni magiche, come riconducibili a cause naturali, senza l'intervento del demonio. Il Perera si mostra altres? ostile all'astrologia, che si considera, a sua volta, contraria ai principi del cristianesimo. Le conclusioni del Pereira sono che i demoni non riusciranno mai a distruggere o ad alterare l'ordine dell'universo. Benito Perera (Ruzafa, Valencia, 1535 ca. - Roma, 1610), questo il vero nome, compare sulle edizioni come Benedictus Pererius Valentinus. Linguista gesuita, insegn? grammatica, retorica, filosofia e teologia a Roma, presso il Collegio Romano dei Gesuiti. Fu molto noto per i suoi ammonimenti contro la magia e l'astrologia, nonch? per i suoi commentari della Bibbia. Rarissima seconda edizione stampata a Venezia, da Giovanni Battista Ciotti Senese, nel 1592, solo un anno dopo la prima edizione, stampata a Ingolstadt nel 1591 con titolo leggermente diverso (Ingolstadii, Ex Officina Typographica Dauidis Sartorii, 1591), e pressoch? introvabile. (cfr.: Caillet, III, p. 8518: "Excellent trait? de sorcellerie et de magie qui servait egalement de Manuel d'exorcismes"; Thorndike, VI, pp. 410 -13; Biblioteca Magica, p. 947; Dorbon, p. 3604). Recente timbro di appartenenza e annotazione a penna al verso della prima pagina bianca, antica cancellatura ai lati della marca al frontespizio, piccoli e rari forellini di tarlo al dorso che invadono un poco il margine inferiore della costola e le prime quattro carte al solo margine inferiore bianco. Esemplare peraltro genuino, in bella impressione e in buono stato di conservazione.

Enclosed: Correspondence between previous owner and The Royal Library in Copenhagen about the Reyneke-book.. The last 16th century Rostock edition of the Low German version of the beloved medieval animal fiction "Reynard the Fox". The first Low German edition of the poem was printed in Lübeck 1498, but the orthography of the 1592 varies from the first edition. The woodcut illustrations for the story as such are based on the famous originals made by Erhard Altdorfer. Other illustrations include vignettes of various professions, f.i. lawyer, nun, farmer and soldier. The Reyneke Voss/Reynard the Fox books are among the first lengthy belles lettres books in Northern Europe. The books were widely read, and this is relected in the condition of the surviving copies.** The volume as such presents itself as a compilation of various publications relating to the German duchy of Holstein
